THE LIBERAL MINDSET

When George H. W. Bush ran for re-election against Arkansas Governor, Bill Clinton, in 1992, the fact that Bill Clinton was a draft dodger and Bush, the elder was a fighter pilot during World War II made no difference to the liberals. How could they applaud Bill Clinton and on the on the other side of the coin, condemn George W. Bush. What was the liberal mindset all about?

For his military obligation, George W. Bush served in both the Texas and Alabama Air National Guards. He never went to Viet Nam, even though the war was currently raging. Was he able to get lighter duty because he was a member of the revered Bush Family. During the time Bush, the younger, was serving in the Air National Guard, his father, George H. W. Bush was serving as the U.S. Representative from Texas’s seventh Congressional district, and later (1971 to 1973), as United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Did the future President of the United States get preferential treatment? I don’t know, but I would say that it was a good possibility. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the war was growing unpopular by the day and anyone who could possibly get out of serving did, using all contacts that they had at their disposal. It was what it was.

When George W. Bush decided to run for president and his less than ideal military service was made known, I said to myself, “Well the liberals won’t be able to upbraid Bush on his military service because their “boy,” Bill Clinton was an “out and out” draft dodger.

Little did I know that the left, with liberal journalist Dan Rather, would make documents from Bush’s military service available during his 2004 run for re-election. The documents were determined to be fakes, but the left continued to badger Bush for his military service. Once again, I just couldn’t grasp the liberal mindset.

After George W. Bush was elected president in 2000, I began to become aware of the disingenuousness of liberals. Seventeen years later, we’re seeing the same old disingenuousness, only more of it. They will accuse you of one thing, then do the same thing later and think nothing of it. When confronted, they change the subject in hopes of throwing you off track. When they’ve lost and they know it, they start hurling accusations at you such as racist, sexist, homophobe, etc.

When I’m discussing something whether it be face to face or online, I’m a stickler about staying on subject. Not saying that I’ve never veered off subject, I certainly have. But for the most part I make every effort to keep things on track.

As I indicated above, liberals often change the subject to throw you off. I sometimes wonder, though, if they’re consciously trying to throw you off track or if they are incapable of understanding what they read. Are they lacking in reading comprehension skills? Because they have the academics in their corner, they think they’re smarter than you and me. But are they? I say no.

AttackOnDisabledYouth

Earlier today, I shared the above meme. A you can see, it’s simply pointing out that the alleged attacks and torture of a white disabled youth by four blacks yelling “blank” Trump and “blank” white people, would have a different reaction by the “tolerant” left, including the Obama administration, and the mainstream media if this had been four whites attacking and torturing a black disabled youth while yelling “blank” Obama and “blank” white people. Cities across the country would be on fire, Obama would have had multiple press conferences, the victim and his family would be invited to the White House, and people would be screaming racism and hate crime.

While conservatives are calling this a hate crime and have indicated that the four perpetrators are racists, the outrage by the right pales in comparison with respect to the outrage that would have taken place by the left had the tables been turned. By now, there would be rioting in the streets, destroying property and injuring people. Black leaders including Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would have immediately weighed in and called for protests. The mainstream media would be reporting on this continuously.

Following my sharing of this meme, a friend, who claims to be a moderate, but I think he’s really a liberal pointed out that the perpetrators were immediately arrested and charged, and justice would be rendered. He also pointed out that President Obama had condemned the acts and seemed to insinuate that the right is always expressing a desire for a completed investigation before conclusions are made. While there was clear-cut evidence of the crime committed after the perpetrators had video-taped it and put it on social media, that was not the point of this meme and the person who commented on it possessed the same liberal mindset that you see day after day, sometimes hour after hour, didn’t seem to recognize that.

Because Donald Trump will be our next president, the liberals are planning all sorts of strategies to derail his presidency. Prominent Democrats, including Michael Moore and Robert Reich, are instructing the sheeple on how to react toward Trump supporters and the legislation that President-elect Trump and the Republican Congress. See my article: Challenges to Conservatism.

I’ve never seen such actions in my life as those coming from the left in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election. We have “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” college students, also known as snowflakes, requesting safe spaces where they can go and grieve over the election, liberal celebrities promoting the boycotting of the inauguration, Americans being attacked in various ways because they supported Donald Trump, ad infinitum.

Can liberals not see through themselves? I shudder to think what would have been said and done to conservatives if they had acted in a similar manner. Supposed we had openly threated to thwart every piece of legislation Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress tried to pass? Suppose we had called Barack Obama something comparable to the names that Trump supporters have been called by the left? First and foremost, we would have been called racists and accused of hating Obama because of his skin color. Plus, we would have been accused of other hateful things, and been the subject of much hate and vitriol emanating from the left.

Well, doesn’t the left do all of that now? Of course, and I don’t expect them to stop, and neither should you. I haven’t been able to figure out the liberal mindset and neither has anyone else. Will anyone?

WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE BLACKS HAPPY?

In an article dated 10/20/2016, liberal “smear merchant,” Huffington Post, entitled, “Donald Trump Really Needs to Quit Saying ‘The African Americans.’”

Donald Trump Really Needs To Quit Saying ‘The African Americans’

During the final presidential debate this past Wednesday night, candidate Trump stated the following: “We need law and order, our inner cities are a disaster. You get shot walking to the store. They have no education. They have no jobs. I will do more for African-Americans and Latinos than Hillary Clinton can do in 10 lifetimes. All she’s done is talked to the African Americans and the Latinos.”

Author Lilly Workneh seem to think that this was offensive, with the Republican nominee alluding that all blacks are uneducated, unemployed, and reside in inner cities. Of course, Trump wasn’t saying this. He was illustrating that Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, had done nothing to make things better for low income blacks, many of which live in the inner city sections of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and other large metropolitan areas throughout the United States.

Even though it was Republicans who were responsible for the passing of the 1964 civil rights legislation, blacks have overwhelmingly voted Democrat, thinking that the Democrat party wants to “help them.” However, because the white folks, particularly those who vote Republican, won’t pay enough money in taxes for entitlement programs such as Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, these programs aren’t doing what they were designed to do and thus, the percentage of Americans in poverty, particularly black Americans has increased.

Mr. Trump said that we need law and order, our inner cities are a disaster. Does anyone, black or other than black, disagree with this? Trump also said, you get shot walking to the store. They have no education and no jobs. Innocent people regularly get shot in the inner cities because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Blacks have continuously voted Democrat because Democrats have continually brain-washed them into thinking that their tax and spend policies are the only mechanisms that will help poor blacks. For a generation, there is no evidence that those tax and spend policies have done one scintilla of good. Now, Donald Trump is asking black to give him a chance, pointing out that the Democrats have not been much help to them. And this is offending them?

Democrats have offered to help low income blacks for more than a generation and to no avail, but when a Republican asks to be given a chance, they get all offended. A related tweet stated the following: “Referring to a diverse community of people as “the African-Americans” shows you have no understanding that they are, in fact, human beings.” Is this person (Michael Fells) for real? This is a real stretch. Someone had to do a whole lot of thinking to come up with this.

Maybe it’s the word, “the,” that’s offensive. I wonder if Donald had left off the work, “the,” would blacks and of course, other liberals, find this offensive.

As I said above, nothing in what Donald Trump said during the third debate even remotely indicated that all blacks are uneducated, unemployed, and live in inner cities. But the same people who get offended by Donald Trump’s words, are the same people who cheered when Hillary Clinton said that half of Donald Trump supporters were a basket of deplorables. Subsequently at least one Democrat operative indicated that she should have said all Trump supporters were a basket of deplorables. In addition be being described as deplorable, liberals have also indicated that Trump supporters are uneducated rednecks. My response to the person who shared the link to this article was as follows: “But I guess it’s okay to call Trump supporters deplorables. Also, I guess it’s okay to label Trump supporters as uneducated red necks. And I guess it was okay for Barak Obama to call those of us who are Christians and support the second amendment, bitter clingers.”

What’s it going to take to make blacks happy? Liberals, including black liberals, claim they want things to change for the better in the inner cities, but a Republican dare not say there are problems in inner cities, and when he or she does, offense is taken. Liberals, including black liberals, seem to insinuate that there are no problems within the inner cities. I guess the only problems blacks have are the isolated incidents where somebody black is killed by somebody white. Then it’s time to mobilize in order to destroy property and injure those poor people who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

This article was contained in a section of the Huffington Post called “Black Voices.” If this is all author Lilly Workneh could muster up, things must be pretty fine among blacks. We know this is not the case. Stupid articles such as this article mask what are real problems, not just in lower income/high crime black communities, but in all low income/high crime communities.

Again, what’s it going to take to make liberal blacks happy? My conclusion is nothing. As long as they give charlatans like Al Sharpton, the Black Lives Matter movement, and Barak Obama a voice, while rejecting Donald Trump and the Republicans who want make their lives better, nothing is going to get any better.

DO LIBERALS WANT RACISM TO END?

The fiftieth anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech” will take place later this summer. Of course, the Democrats will take full advantage of this milestone to promote their racist, bigoted agendas. I have no doubt that Republicans/conservatives will be demonized to the fullest. I can just hear the current President now talking about how horrible white folks were and still are in the South. Of course, the current President is not fit to wipe the boots of Dr. Martin Luther King.

I’m predicting that the Democrat/liberal leaders, including the current President will ignore the many accomplishments of blacks and other minorities and say that there is still much racism and bigotry in the world because of the Republicans. I would love to be a part of the celebration, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be welcome at them.

Liberals make everything about race. I remember when Hurricane Katrina came ashore in Pass Christian, Mississippi, bringing destruction all around. Levies were breached in the City of New Orleans and much of the city went underwater. Because of the lame efforts of the then Mayor of New Orleans and the then Governor of Louisiana, both Democrats, many folks suffered greatly. The folks primarily affected were not blacks, they were our neighbors a half days drive from us. There were horror stories coming out of New Orleans and it certainly affected me as it would affect any caring person.

Then the Democrats had to interject race into the mix. George W. Bush was president and he was blamed along with a Republican administration for the catastrophes. Instead of focusing on the problems at hand, the Democrats interjected race and possibly made matters worse by pitting people against people. I won’t get into the particulars of what happened in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. That may be an articled reserved for later this year for the tenth anniversary of the landfall of Katrina.

From the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, Missouri to the recent allegations in Texas of white policeman using excessive force on blacks, Democrats/liberals have chosen to ignore facts and rushed to judgment concluding that white police officers are prejudiced against blacks and wake up in the morning eager to do bad things to blacks. They always root against the white policeman and express remorse if evidence shows that the white policeman acted appropriately. Where is the tolerance and fair-mindedness that liberals boast about having?

Race hustler, Al Sharpton has indicated that he wants white police officers to treat blacks differently than they treat white people. In fact, I believe that he’s even said that any white person should not be aggressive toward a black person even if that black person is attacking the white person. That tells me that he thinks that whites should allow themselves to be injured or even killed if their attacker is black. While Al Sharpton is full of it and we all know it, he obviously doesn’t adhere to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King and desires to undo everything so many of us have worked toward for the last fifty years. That is to judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

Now, some on the left are advocating that teachers in a classroom have to treat black students different from white students when they misbehave. The reasoning for this, according to advocates is that many black children aren’t taught discipline in their homes and therefor, they don’t know any better. This idea is insane beyond words.

Dr. King, in his dream, envisioned blacks and whites working together, worshipping together, breaking bread together, living side by side, etc. Fifty years from the “I Have a Dream” speech, race should not matter except for identification purposes and maybe for business purposes. If I’m trying to sell tanning products, my target market would not generally include blacks.

With all of the above, it should be obvious to anyone that the liberals don’t want racial harmony to exist in the United States of America. I’ve said this many times and will continue to say it, the definition of racism, according to liberals, changes sometimes hourly. We never know what the definition of the moment might be and when an innocent statement made by a conservative might be construed as racist with the liberals seeking to do everything they can to destroy that person.

The current President certainly doesn’t desire racial harmony because he needs to blame conservatives and accuse them of racism and bigotry to take the focus away from him and his disastrous policies. The first lady of the United States obviously doesn’t desire racial harmony. Her venomous racially charged addresses to graduates these last few weeks demonstrates that.

I doubt very seriously we will have the racial harmony in this nation, the kind Dr. King envisioned, in my lifetime. Liberals/Democrats, that is solely because of you!

IS THERE NO SATISFYING LIBERALS?

I still have more to say about the tolerant left accusing Fox Cable News of disparaging the poor, but I’m giving that a rest today because I came upon an article on Talking Points Memo that I came upon article that I want to write about. I’ll continue my “Liberals Gone Wild” series next week.

As many of you who read my posts regularly know, I have a folder in my favorites called “Stupid Liberal Articles,” and it is quite large. The article I just added is from talkingpointsmemo.com dated May 21, 2015 and authored by Jesse J. Holland. It is entitled, “Differing Portrayals of Waco, Baltimore Spur Reflection, WTFs.” I’m not going to speculate on what Mr. Holland means by “WTFs”. If it stands for what we all think it stands for, this is just another example of classless liberalism.

Being an unenlightened oaf, I had to read the article through a couple of times and study it to get the gist of what it means and I’m still not sure I have it right, but I’m doing my best to interpret it.

The author appears to be complaining about the riots in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland getting excessive media attention while the gun between police and bikers where nine bikers were killed is getting practically no attention. Mr. Holland indicates that while there were no deaths during the Baltimore and Ferguson protests, people immediately stereotyped all of the protesters as criminals. Holland goes on to say that we haven’t heard the level of disgust and dismay as you did over fires burning in Ferguson and in Baltimore. Civil rights attorney Charles F. Coleman, Jr. said only minority communities get blamed for violence, while no one blames white families or white communities for fatal violence by white men, characterizing such events as “isolated incidents.” Holland also remarked about how the current President of the United States described the Baltimore looters as “thugs,” and the media devoted hours of television and radio airtime to dissecting the social ills that affect the black community.

First of all, there’s a big difference. There were no protesting and no rioting in Waco. The Waco incident was a local matter and is being handled locally as it should be.

Having said all of the above, MR. HOLLAND, HOW CAN YOU BE SO STUPID? You appear to be griping because the media is not covering Waco like they covered Ferguson and Baltimore. Looters in Ferguson and Baltimore were labeled as thugs and were looting and rioting. Most were black and were protesting and rioting because two black men had been shot and killed by two white policeman. When speculation rose regarding the actions of the police, matters should have been handled locally. If they had been handled locally, the media would not have covered these two incidents. Unrest escalated in Ferguson and Baltimore because of the likes of Al Sharpton and other race hustlers moving in and whipping up the folks. Also, it has been alleged that billionaire liberal operative George Soros indirectly funded the protests and riots that took place in both cities. Liberals everywhere rushed to judgment in both incidents, championing Michael Brown and Freddie Gray and demonizing the police. We all know liberals don’t care about facts. They decide how they want an outcome to be and if it doesn’t turn out the way they want it to turn out, they protest and riot, claiming racism, sexism, and whatever other “ism” they can find. Again forget facts and forget fairness. This is how liberals operate.

And to make matters worse, the current President of the United States weighed in and it was not his place to weigh in on either the Ferguson situation or the Baltimore situation. Again, these were local matters and should have been handled locally. But our current President is half black and a racist to boot. He was a community organizer in Chicago before being elected State Senator in Illinois, then U.S. Senator, then President of the United States. He attended a church where anti-American radicalism was preached and hung out with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn of the seventies radical group, Weather Underground. Bill Ayers and members of the Weather Underground bombed the Pentagon and to this day Ayers is not sorry for what he did. We have a president that despises the United States of America and whose goal is to destroy the United States of America through different methods, including following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals which includes undermining authority which would include our local police forces.

Mr. Holland, if you’re upset because the media focused on Ferguson and Baltimore, depicting the struggles of black Americans, and that certain factions were blaming black Americans for the rioting in these two cities, you need to take things up with the likes of Al Sharpton, George Soros, the tolerant left, and the current President of the United States. They’re the ones who promoted the protesting and rioting, along with the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. I included the tolerant left in my list of folks to blame for the media coverage of Ferguson and Baltimore. It was the tolerant left that kept the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie going even after it was concluded that Michael Brown never had his hands up, nor was he running from the police.

Why aren’t there protests and riots in Waco after the shootout where nine bikers, labeled thugs, were killed after causing trouble? It’s been indicated that those who were part of the biker gangs were mostly white and Hispanic. The skin color of the Waco police officers involved was not reported and I don’t care about the skin color of the police in Waco. White folks were killed by the police, so Al Sharpton, the current President, George Soros, and the tolerant left don’t care about white folks. In fact, they are waging a war on white folks.

I’m a white woman who lives in central Alabama. I’m working seven days a week to make my small business profitable so that I can be my own boss and not have to go back to working for jerks. Being a conservative, I don’t see things in terms of race. Civil rights legislation was signed into law a half century ago. What do I think about Waco? It was bad, but I’m a police supporter and feel that if any nefarious actions took place, investigation and prosecution of these actions should be handled at the local level.

MORE ON THE DISINGENUOUSNESS OF LIBERALS

I happened upon an article posted on alternet.com written by the very liberal Terrell Jermaine Starr. The name of the article was “Dear GOP: 10 Things You Should Never, Ever Say to Black People.” My first question was this, “Can Democrats then say these things to black people without fear of reprise.” If the answer is yes, then one of our basic freedoms has just been taken away from a substantial percentage of American citizens. Are we now going to have to wear some kind of symbol indicating our political persuasion so the “speech police” will know who to arrest? Needless to say, this article immediately went into my stupid liberal articles folder in my favorites.
Mr. Starr began his article with a fact that we all know, black voters have consistently cast their ballots for Democratic candidates at a rate of nearly 90% during each election cycle.
Back to the 10 things us Republicans should never say to Blacks. I’m going to list these things for you and refute everything that Mr. Starr says.

We’re not the party of government handouts; we believe in personal responsibility. Mr. Starr says that we’re suggesting that blacks are not hard workers. WRONG! We’re telling ALL LIKELY VOTERS that this country was founded based on its citizens being personably responsible for their lives. If you’re a capable hard worker, you’ll probably lead a prosperous life. All the Democrats can offer you are handouts because they’re the ones looking down their noses at you. They don’t think you’re capable and that you need handouts. We, the GOP, think that’s BS!
• We have black people in our party. Just look at Rep. Mia Love of Utah and U.S. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina. Mr. Starr doesn’t think that Ms. Love and Mr. Scott talk enough about racism and social injustice, so he demands that that the GOP not use them as examples. Is racism and social injustice all you think blacks should talk about? It looks like you’re still stuck in the 1960s. This is the second decade in the twenty-first century. Things have changed and changed a lot since the sixties, Mr. Starr. OPEN YOUR EYES! It looks like you want to return to the sixties, so you can have something to gripe about. Talk about racism?
• We’re the party of Lincoln; we freed the slaves. Mr. Starr says that black people don’t care about the historical legacy of Abraham Lincoln. He tells the GOP to talk to blacks about the economy the way we would talk to white folks about the economy. WE DO! In my observations, it’s Democrats who talk to black folks differently. Again, I’ve witnessed firsthand Democrats conversing with blacks trying to put “soul” into their diction. Also, remember Hillary Clinton at a church in Selma, Alabama.
• Any quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Mr. Starr wants to put a moratorium on quoting the more popular speeches of Dr. King, claiming that Dr. King is more than his “I Have a Dream” speech. Again, I would like to ask Mr. Starr if only Democrats are allowed to quote Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech? Mr. Starr goes on to indicate that Dr. King was not the docile, white-people-loving black man most people learned about in school. Mr. Starr, it sounds like you want to denigrate Dr. King. Do you not believe that we should judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin? Of course you don’t, you’re a liberal!
• Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are race hustlers. Mr. Starr indicates that no one has anointed either one of them official status as go-to leaders for checking the pulse of black America. It’s quite obvious that our current president has unofficially designated Al Sharpton as his advisor on race. Race hustlers are exactly what Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are. It’s their business to stir the pot and they do. Starr goes on to say, “How would you like it if someone said, “Hey, white man, you need to check your leader, Rush Limbaugh, about his anti-blackness.” First of all, Rush Limbaugh is not a “white leader.” Starr’s quote makes no sense at all. Again, maybe I’m missing something. Remember, I’m a southern white conservative Christian, an unenlightened oaf.
• It’s time to end affirmative action. Affirmative action is a racist program that speaks to blacks and other minorities telling them that they are not good enough to make it in the white man’s world. So, we’re going to help you out because we’re your friends. BS. And remember, affirmative action is not the same as equal opportunity. Mr. Starr dictates to us Republicans that if we want to discuss ending affirmative action, follow that up with a detailed description of how you will work to end racism across the board. And please don’t say black people can bootstrap themselves out of racism. Affirmative action is not going to end racism because affirmative action is racist itself. Mr. Starr goes on to say that black people cannot bootstrap themselves out of racism. Again, I’m an unenlightened oaf and I’m not sure what “bootstrap out of racism” means, but it sure sounds like Mr. Starr thinks of blacks as inferior. RACIST, RACIST, RACIST!
• Whitesplaining racism at black institutions. Mr. Starr indicates that he is talking about Senator Rand Paul in a speech he made to Howard University Students. I’m not familiar with the visit or the speech, but apparently Senator Paul pointed out to the students that the NAACP was founded by Republicans and that the first elected black U.S. Senator was a Republican. There’s nothing wrong with pointing things out to people even though they may already know these things. How many times do our ministers, bosses, teachers, coaches, etc. remind us of thing we already know. However, the Senator apparently mispronounced Senator Brook’s name. I’d say that’s punishable with twenty lashes. What do you think?
• What about black on black crime? Mr. Starr indicates that black on black crime cannot be discussed without addressing social and economic policies that create job growth or historical racism that suppressed economic mobility. I know liberals don’t want to discuss black on black crime. They would rather destroy property and injure innocent people over an isolated white on black shooting. What can I say? It’s going to have to be discussed, but as long as liberals refuse to acknowledge it, nothing’s going to change.
• It’s time to take America back. This country is moving in the wrong direction to the extent that just about everything we’re doing now is diametrically opposite to the way our founding fathers intended. The Federal government is growing by leaps and bounds and intruding into our lives more and more each day. If we’re going to get back on track, we have to lower taxes and repeal the burdensome regulations that the Democrats have forced down our throats. Mr. Starr apparently sees this as some sort of racist comment. How can this be racist? Well, again, I’m just an unenlightened oaf.
• Insulting the Black Lives Matter Movement. I don’t know of anyone who is insulting that movement. Black lives do matter and no one is saying they don’t. Mr. Starr indicates that the reason so many people are on the streets protesting is that black people are disproportionately affected by police brutality. It has nothing to do with being anti-cop. I haven’t spent a lot of time gathering statistics on law enforcement actions against blacks, but right now I just don’t see it as a major problem. If you think it is, Mr. Starr, then someone or some group needs to research it and provide reasonable statistics and proof. Then we can sit down, discuss, and hopefully develop solutions to alleviate the problems. Rioting, looting, destroying property, and injuring people won’t solve the problem if there is one. But again, maybe you and your liberal cohorts don’t want the problem solved; you just want to exacerbate it so you can continue to write your stupid and uninformed garbage.

There you have it. Like Dr. Jaime Grant who I wrote about several posts ago, it sounds like Mr. Starr is indeed a racist and looks down his nose at blacks and perhaps other minorities. Journalists like Dr. Grant and Mr. Starr are not mainstream journalists. Are they trying to get into the mainstream by writing the type of articles that they currently write? I don’t know what’s inside their heads, but this sort of writing would only appeal to the lower echelon of liberals or does it?
